scenes of the city
We recently paid a visit to a 25-by-136-foot cluster of trees and foliage in SF's Tenderloin. Sporting the clever name The Tenderloin National Forest, this oasis is nestled between a cluster of residential buildings and hotels as a welcome sanctuary in the midst of the gritty neighborhood.
We recently we headed out onto SF Bay to catch some of the America's Cup Red Bull Youth racing to give you a bit of a preview of what will happen over this weekend, starting Sunday.
Despite the recent gray weather, the high-speed racing continued on the SF Bay with even more America's Cup sailing.
For this week's Scenes of the City we tour a historical gem in San Francisco's Portola District. Overgrown and falling apart, the 'hood's old rose nursery is one of those places that reaps its magic from its state of decay. Full of brambles, broken glass, and old nursery tools, the greenhouse takes up an entire city block. See it on Google maps here.
This week, we take you to a little-known forested pocket of the city. The idyllic Macondray Lane is a wooded pedestrian path on the south-eastern side of Russian Hill in San Francisco.
